New 1st gen 8gb iPhone...What's it worth?

Just as the title reads, what are they going for. I am having my old iPhone repaired and since I already have a 3g it is useless to me so I am going to sell it. Should I have it unlocked first as well before selling it, or let the buyer deal with that? TIA

I bought one for $125 a few weeks ago, I'm sure you get more

I know someone that might be interested if it's a good price. My roommate is looking for an unlocked one.

unlock it and put it up on craigslist and you could get anywhere from $250 - $400 for it. just start your price high and lower it once a week until someone buys it.

Aren't they starting to "brick" jailbroken iphones?
My buddy jailbroke his 1st gen, and he had to buy a new phone because it became "locked" or some shit. I don't have too many details, because he lives in another state and I briefly got to talk to him.

Not as far as I know. Mine is JB. However, it is a piece of crap that constantly freezes and locks up.

What gen is your iphone? I got a first gen here, 8gb I got it for $80 but it needs a new screen (lots of scratches).

Try dealing with a Pos treo 700, the only reason I use this brick is because its free service. but damn this thing loves to lock up, i have to make calls when its damn good and ready too otherwise it'll just sit there.
